Toyota is testing a new car safety system that will allow their vehicles to talk to each other and with the roads they drive on!
They're testing the new vehicles at the Intelligent Transport System site where cars get info from sensors in the road and the other cars.
It's meant to help motorists avoid running red lights, cars merging into their blind spot, and to alert them of crossing pedestrians and much more!
The car to car technology is something that could pretty easily be rolled out, but the smart road features will be harder.
We'd need to basically redo every single road out there.
Or at least start having certain roads be converted to "smart roads."
We hope they can roll out this technology and get these safer cars on the road soon!
